Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed

Support ALICE Families


The 2018 Connecticut United Ways ALICE Report highlights families who are struggling to make ends meet. See Connecticut's breakdown.

Living paycheck to paycheck is the reality for 40 percent of families in central and northeastern Connecticut, according to the 2018 Connecticut United Ways ALICE Report.

ALICE is a United Way acronym that stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.

The term ALICE refers to households that, despite working hard, are unable to afford life’s most basic necessities such as housing, food, child care, transportation, technology and healthcare.

ALICE is our friend, neighbor, coworker and family member.

ALICE workers are vital to our economy and essential to every community’s success.

The 2018 Connecticut United Ways ALICE Report highlights financial hardship in Connecticut and provides a breakdown in percentages of households who fall below the ALICE threshold, a metric that weighs a local household survival budget with the amount of income that household actually brings in. You can find a copy of the report here.

ALICE families need your support.
